Registration for the pumpkin roll begins at 9AM and the cost is $1 to enter PER pumpkin. There is no limit to the number of pumpkins you are allowed to enter. The pumpkin roll will begin at 10:30 at the intersection of Palmer St and “Frogtown” Road. One very important reminder: spectators of the pumpkin roll are urged to stay off the road and out of the way of the rolling pumpkins. They can cause injury, especially to small children and animals, so PLEASE, stay out of the way and always pay attention.

Other happenings throughout the day are; live entertainment by the Frogtown Four, Roving Street Performers, vendors from all over the area with unique gift and home items, along with great food. A screaming contest will take place at 11:30 near the pumpkin roll, and dare I say, you won’t want to miss it. There will also be a costume parade and to close out the Pumpkinfest entertainment, will be the group “Macon Grass”.
